A Marvel film w/ a female lead is a Marvel film nonetheless 🤷🏾♂️
"In every moment, there is the possibility of a better future. But you people won't believe it. And because you won't believe it, you won't do what is necessary to make it a reality.
So you dwell on this terrible future, and resign yourselves to it. For one reason. Because that future doesn't ask anything of you today."
As cloyingly saccharine it is in its retro-futuristic fetishism and aggressively hackneyed its dialogue and writing are, that quote knocked the wind out of me. A lot of this film was chaff to me, but that— that was worth watching.
